Let's start the revolution here in the primaries.

No more politics as usual. Let's stop calling candidates, supporters, allies and contributors names. Evil, dishonest, scheming, corrupt, unethical, lying, etc. are seen quite frequently here. Let's criticize the action, not the person. It's perfectly fine to say, "Senator Smith lied," assuming there is some evidence for such a statement. It's quite something else to say, "Senator Smith is a liar." Not to mention throwing in all the adjectives to name Senator Smith as a notorious liar, outrageous liar, contemptible liar, and so on.
